WHERE ARE THEY NOW? The 2003 Spurs — the first championship team of the Big 3 era – Sports – Pulselive.co.ke

news

The San Antonio Spurs run finally appears to be over, or at least close to it.

After Manu Ginobili retired on Monday, only Gregg Popovich remains of the original Spurs’ dynasty. Tony Parker left in free agency this year, and Tim Duncan retired in 2016.

The core of Duncan, Ginobili, Parker, and Pop formed in 2002 when Ginobili entered the NBA. That 2002-03 Spurs team went onto win a championship, the first of four that the four men would share together.

But that team has plenty of other big names on it, too, from former All-Stars, legendary role players, notorious coaches, and more.

Here’s where the 2002-03 Spurs team is today.

Tim Duncan was the leader of the Spurs. He averaged 23 points, 13 rebounds, and 4 assists per game that season en route to MVP and later, Finals MVP.

Duncan retired in 2016 after winning three more championships en route to becoming the Spurs’ greatest player and one of the best players in NBA history. Today, he still works with the franchise in an unofficial capacity.

Manu Ginobili joined the Spurs in 2002-03, though he was drafted in the second round in 1999. After a decorated international career, the 25-year-old Ginobili averaged just 7 points in 20 minutes per game in his first year.

Jamie Dimon says he shouldn’t have claimed he could beat Trump in the 2020 election

Published

on


  • JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon explained why he walked back his comments that he could beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election in an interview with ABC News that aired Sunday.
  • Dimon had made the original comments at a JPMorgan event on Wednesday.
  • He told ABC News that he made those remarks “more out of frustration and a little of my own machismo.”

In an interview with ABC News that aired Sunday, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon took back his recent comments about beating President Donald Trump in a 2020 election.

During a JPMorgan event September 12, Dimon said, “I think I could beat Trump,” Business Insider’s Bob Bryan reported.

Dimon continued: “Because I’m as tough as he is, I’m smarter than he is. I would be fine. He could punch me all he wants, it wouldn’t work with me. I’d fight right back.”

After CNBC first reported Dimon’s comments, Dimon released a statement saying “I should not have said it” and “I get frustrated because I want all sides to come together to help solve big problems.”

The following morning, Trump tweeted his response to Dimon’s original comments: “The problem with banker Jamie Dimon running for President is that he doesn’t have the aptitude or ‘smarts’ & is a poor public speaker & nervous mess – otherwise he is wonderful.”

In the ABC News interview, Dimon told correspondent Rebecca Jarvis that he had made those remarks about beating Trump “more out of frustration and a little of my own machismo,” adding, “it also proves I wouldn’t be a good politician.”

When asked whether he’d ever run for president, Dimon told Jarvis, “I never say never to anything, but no.”

This isn’t the first time Dimon has raised speculation about whether he’d run for office, Bryan reported. In recent annual letters, Dimon has discussed national issues such as education, infrastructure, and healthcare.

Yet Dimon told Business Insider in February, “It’s not what I’ve been trained to do — I’ve never run for office, I’ve never thought of things like that, so I think you have to be a sort of kind of person to be a politician.”

On ABC News, Dimon highlighted Trump’s economic contributions: “When President Trump was elected, confidence skyrocketed, consumers, small business, large corporate and because pro-business, pro-competitive taxes, pro some regulatory reform, and that has helped the economy.”

He said he would give Trump a “pretty good” grade on the economy.

Protesters Shut Afghan Election Offices as Political Crisis

Published

on


The last-minute jockeying over an election already delayed by three years has again exposed a depressing reality: that after five elections over 17 years, costing about $1 billion, Afghanistan still lacks the most basic consensus on how an election should be held and a credible body to oversee it.

The offices were shut in Balkh province in the north, Kandahar in the south, and Herat in the west, according to Abdul Aziz Ibrahimi, a spokesman for the election commission.

The protesters, largely supporters of powerful regional figures who have intensely feuded with President Ashraf Ghani, locked the gates of the commission’s offices in all three provinces and pitched tents outside to hold sit-ins.

Gen. Akhtar Ibrahimi, the deputy minister of interior, said the government had instructed security forces to protect the election offices and “to use force if necessary.”

A spokesman for Ghani, Shah Hussain Murtazawi, said the government was supportive of proposals to make the election more transparent, but would not allow anyone to impede the process.

“Afghan security forces have the responsibility to protect the election process,” Murtazawi said.

Afghan political parties, who have previously fought bloody wars with one another, have united in recent months to demand a delay in the Oct. 20 vote until convincing measures to ensure fairness are put in place. The parties say that the number of registered voters, announced as more than 9 million by the country’s election commission, is unrealistically high and the result of fraud. They said that can only be corrected through biometric verification.

The government, and to an extent Western officials in Kabul, accuse the political parties of holding the election process hostage and of trying to negotiate influence because they cannot rally enough of their supporters to register.

Hassan Dehqanzada, a member of Jamiat party, said it had seen evidence that one person had registered to vote as many as five times. He was one of about 100 people — including at least seven armed men counted by a reporter — blocking access to the Balkh office.

“The voters need to go through biometric verification,” he said. “Otherwise, we will not allow a fraudulent election to take place.”

Many Afghans fear a repeat of the 2014 presidential election, which was marred by widespread ballot stuffing and months of disputes that threatened to tear the country apart. This time, the vote will take place as a resurgent Taliban has taken more territory, and about one-third of the polling stations will not open because of deteriorating security.

A larger concern is a lack of faith in mechanisms to resolve election disputes, which could worsen the country’s volatility.

Abdullah Ahmadzai, a former chief of Afghanistan’s election commission, said electoral reforms have often been used for short-term “political exploitations.”

“Following each election, commissioners and leadership of the election commission have been continuously replaced, making institutionalization of elections management even more difficult,” he said. “We have not had a single commission manage more than one election in Afghanistan. On the other hand, we have not witnessed a single case where candidates were held to account for encouraging fraud and intimidations.”

Afghanistan’s coalition government, born out of the disputed 2014 election, missed deadline after deadline on reforms, postponing parliamentary elections for three years.

They were scheduled for October after the government came under pressure from international donors, who see elections as the most basic litmus test for the democratic system they helped put in place. President Donald Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, flew in to deliver a stern message: holding the elections was of “the biggest importance for the U.S.”

Creation of small, local voter lists was a basic step that gave reformers some hope. Potential voters had to show up to a registration center and get their identity cards stamped with special stickers.

Political parties now say massive fraud took place in that voter registration, where identity cards were faked and verification stickers were misused.

Registration had gotten off to a demoralizingly slow start: With just over 6,000 people registering per day, the pace was so slow that it raised fears there would be too few voters to justify an election. Then, the number picked up at rapid pace, without any improvement in security around the country.

In the end, at least four provinces — Paktia, Nimruz, Nangrahar and Nuristan — saw more than 100 percent of their estimated eligible voters registering, according to Afghan Analysts Network. Some of the provinces with highest rates of voter registration were also some of the most violent.

Sayed Hafiz Hashimi, an election commissioner, called the claims of fraud a conspiracy to derail the process.

“If it had been fraud, the numbers would have been 20 million, not what we have now,” Hashimi said. “These are real numbers. I can’t reject a small percentage of possible fraud, or repeat registrations, but that is a small portion.”

Protests rock Uganda after MP Bobi Wine detention at Airport

Published

on

 

Bobi Wine’s supporters protested in Kampala last week too. [AFP]

Protests erupted in the Ugandan capital on Friday after police detained two lawmakers at the international airport as they prepared to travel abroad for medical care, witnesses said.

People demonstrated in different parts of Kampala, burning tyres and piling rocks and other barricades in the middle of the roads. Police said the protests were limited and had been contained.

The lawmakers, Robert Kyagulanyi also known as Bobi Wine and Francis Zaake, say they were tortured by security forces while in detention in August.

The case led to protests against President Yoweri Museveni.

He has won praise in the West for his support against militant Islam in the region but, at age 74, is seen by many Ugandans as out of touch with his people, nearly 80 percent of whom are under the age of 30.

The lawmakers were trying to leave the country to seek medical treatment abroad for the injuries they said they suffered in detention when police arrested them at Kampala’s international airport on Thursday night.

Kyagulanyi was charged with treason last over his alleged role in the stoning of President Yoweri Museveni’s convoy this month, but a court granted him access to private doctors, citing his health.

Kyagulanyi’s lawyer Robert Amsterdam last week told Reuters that his client had been left unable to stand after being beaten while in detention. When he appeared in court a day after his lawyer spoke, he was unable to walk without help.

Government spokesman Ofwono Opondo last week dismissed the lawyer’s comments as rubbish.

Kyagulanyi, 35, is a musician who entered politics after winning a parliamentary by-election last year. He goes by the stage name “Bobi Wine” and has emerged as a formidable threat to President Yoweri Museveni’s 32-year rule, winning popular support through his music and strong criticism of the government.

On Friday morning, Amsterdam said he had spoken to Kyagulanyi, who said he had been “beaten by the same army unit as before”. Government spokesman Opondo did not answer a phone call requesting comment.

Friday’s demonstrations were most intense in Kamwokya, a suburb of Kampala where Kyagulanyi, a pop star known by his stage name Bobi Wine, has a recording studio, according to Dick Nvule, a local radio reporter.

“Protesters blocked the roads using garbage cans and burning tyres. Motorists have to get alternative routes to the city centre. Soldiers and riot police are still clearing the roads,” Nvule told Reuters.

Police spokesman Luke Owoyesigyire said police were monitoring the city to ensure no illegal rallies took place.

The two parliamentarians were among a group of five lawmakers who were detained on Aug. 13 in Uganda’s northwestern town of Arua and accused of throwing stones at a presidential convoy during the campaign for a parliamentary seat.

Police said on Thursday they had stopped Kyagulanyi, who has been charged with treason but released on bail, as they awaited further guidance. He and the other lawmaker were taken from the airport to Mulago National Referral Hospital in Kampala.

Zaake, the other lawmaker, has not been charged but has been in hospital in Kampala. Images of him posted on social media show him lying on a bed, eyes closed, with multiple bruises on his hand and other body areas.

In July, the constitution was amended to remove the presidential age limit of 75 years, meaning that Museveni, 72, can run again for president in 2021 — the year the country hopes to begin oil production.
